So, SNL opened with Brad Pitt as Dr. Anthony Fauci. How can the show get any better than that?
How about Miley Cyrus absolutely nailing a cover of Pink Floyd’s classic “Wish You Were Here” while seated fireside and accompanied by Andrew Watt, a noted guitarist, songwriter and all-around hit-maker, who recently recovered from coronavirus and spoke of the frightening experience on social media. The musician now carries antibodies which may have some impact on reacquiring the virus and is donating his blood to further research the makeup of COVID-19.
Cyrus’ raspy take on the iconic song was just what the doctor ordered, so to speak, as she stayed true to the simplicity of the 1975 original but injected it with a somber sense of urgency. No embellishments needed.
Watt, on a 12-string acoustic guitar, also didn’t stray from one of the most recognized melodies in the history of music. Having recently collaborated with a diverse array of artists such as Post Malone, Ozzy Osbourne, 5 Seconds of Summer, Camila Cabello and Dua Lipa, Watt’s next project is executive-producing Cyrus’ forthcoming, yet-to-be-scheduled album.
